Grain Place Foods offers the following Rye products:
Rye is a wheat relative known especially for the distinctive, hearty flavor it imparts to traditional rye and pumpernickel breads. It is one of the most recently domesticated cereal crops, a descendant of a wild type that was widely distributed in wheat and barley fields in southern Asia. Rye is more tolerant of cold temperatures and drought than wheat and many other cereal grains. This has made it a prized staple for northern Europeans, who use it to make breads, crackers, and whiskey. Nutritionally rye is similar to wheat but has less gluten.
In our whole-grain organic rye only the hull is removed. Rye is similar to wheat, with a heartier flavor and chewy texture. Rye requires more cooking time than wheat; soaking overnight before cooking is recommended. Use as a base for a winter vegetable stir-fry or an addition to casseroles, soups, stews and breads.
Rolled rye is a rich flavored whole grain food you can use alone or combined with other rolled grains for breakfast porridge, or in a quick pilaf. Grain Place Rolled Rye is processed in a way that increases digestibility, while retaining nutrients and improving storage quality.
Rye flour is milled from whole grain organic rye (including the bran, endosperm and germ) and retains most of its nutrients. Use it as a partial substitution for other grain flours in baked goods. Rye flour is lower in gluten than wheat, so combine it with wheat flour in yeast breads.
